Trentino is rich in internationally acclaimed food specialties, such as one of the only three official varieties of Parmesan cheese, the northernmost production of olive oil in the world, award-winning wines, and protected brands of apples.
Until 1918, Trentino was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire; since 1948, Trentino and the neighboring Alto Adige / Südtirol province have been enjoying a semi-independent administration, in recognition of their unique past and heritage.
Trentino hosts four prestigious UNESCO recognitions: sections of two World Heritage Sites (the Dolomites and the Alpine Prehistoric Pile Dwellings), one Man and the Biosphere Reserve (the Ledro Alps and Judicaria), as well as one Global Geopark (the Adamello Brenta Nature Park).
Trentino is strategically situated on one of the major corridors that connect Italy with Northern Europe; thanks to efficient high-speed trains, major Italian cities (Verona, Venice, Milan, Florence, Rome), Austria and Germany are just a few hours away
